Our thanks to Arthur Haygarth for collecting the information and to Roger Heavens for providing this scorecard which was first published in Arthur Haygarth's Cricket Scores and Biographies Volume 16. Copies of the book can be obtained from . Additions or corrections to this scorecard would be gratefully received.
Source notes that Mr. A.H. Stratford hit one ball over the pavilion and then over the grandstand scoring for each stroke six. Mr. Studd also hit over the pavilion for six. Out of the 44 innings of the Colts only one double figure score was made. In another account Gripper is named Griffin whilst Walker is given out caught Pilling in both innings.
In another Middlesex Colts match from the same source Davey is called Devey.
